Jon Stewart took on Michigan’s new “right-to-work” laws in the opening segment of “The Daily Show” Tuesday night, blasting Republican Governor Rick Snyder for signing two bills that will make it illegal to require workers to pay union dues as a condition of employment.
“So it’s really a right-to-work-around-the-unions-for-the-corporation,” Stewart said. “It’s one of those things that are actually named for the opposite of the thing they do. Like strip bars call themselves gentlemen’s clubs — they’re not.”
But Stewart was disappointed with the unions’ protest chants.
“Dude, you’re from Michigan, Detroit, 8-Mile. You’ve got to come up with something better than ‘busting, disgusting.'”
And then he made up his own union rap.
